A well-known Kerry man has died off the north-east coast of Spain.

Mr Sheehy, who was in his 60s, was thrown into the water at the mouth of the river Minho.
He had been taking part in the 2,500km Camino voyage from Ireland to Spain.
Singer Glen Hansard and artist Liam Holden were also involved in various stages of the voyage.
Mr Sheehy and three others in the naomhóg, had been rowing off the northeastern coast of Spain.
The three others in the naomhóg - musician Breandán Ó Beaglaoi, Pádraig Ó Duinnín and Liam Ó Maonlaí - were taken to hospital but are understood not to be seriously injured.
Mr Sheehy is suspected to have suffered a heart attack.
From Baile an Fheirteáraigh, the Corca Dhuibhne native was a well known poet, historian, author and Irish language advocate.
A skilled boatman, he once circumnavigated the coast of Ireland in a naomhóg with fellow West Kerry native Ger Ó Cíobháin.
